Y'all know me. I love Law & Order more than my luggage, especially the Lennie Briscoe Years. And I've been an avid fan of SVU since the very first episode aired. After 14 Seasons, I'm still hooked. (Besides, Ice T looks and speaks just like my older brother, which makes me almost all sentimental.)
Law & Order: SVU may be the last of the Law & Order franchise standing, but it's definitely not the least. The writers are pushing envelopes that are uncomfortable and scary, and the effect is thought-provoking. Season 14 gives us two of the stand-out episodes of the entire *series* -- "Monster's Legacy" and "Born Psychopath." I'd buy the entire season on DVD for just these two episodes; but there's so much more, including.... Wait for it... Drum roll, please...The Return of Criminal Intent's Detective Eames. Oh, yeah.
SVU has always been a personality-driven series, but this year, we finally see "behind the curtain" and into the character's private worlds in-depth. We're talking Solid Writing and an eye for the Real.
Law & Order: SVU Season 14 is the first and, so far, the ONLY season of SVU I've pre-ordered/owned. I await its delivery with the same baited breath usually reserved for my amazon deliveries containing the newest season of Downton Abbey and Call of the Midwife and the almost mythical book *Nurses in Nazi Germany: The Nazi 'Euthanasia' Program.* Season 14 of SVU surpasses all my expectations. I'm telling you: It's *that* Good!
